Froch: Does Groves Think He's Going To Last Three?

Carl Froch has promised fireworks when he "goes to war" with George Groves in their eagerly anticipated rematch this Saturday, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Referee Howard Foster controversially stopped Groves when the pair clashed last November, eventually leading the IBF to order a rematch.

And speaking at a public workout at Broadmarsh Shopping Centre in Nottingham Froch has promised to bring his game 'A' game to Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

"I've put my body through three months of torture and hell - that's what it's been torture and hell - for the British public because I am going to war," Froch told Sky Sports.

"I am prepared and ready to go to war on May 31. This Saturday I am coming for it. I am going to leave everything in the ring, my heart, my soul, my blood, my sweat and my tears if necessary.

"It's all going in there because my whole 12-year career has been focusing and honing in on this point. To fight in front of 80,000 people in a stadium of this size is beyond my wildest dreams and I'm going to capture that and make sure I use this platform to show everybody how great I am.

"The Lucien Bute, the Arthur Abraham fight - that's the Carl Froch that's turning up.

"The angry, aggressive, spiteful, bitter, war-hardened, tough, strong, mentally determined dangerous fighter, brutal warrior - that's what I am.

"You'll see that guy turn up on 31 May I promise you that because I am ready."

Last week, a confident Groves suggested he could emerge victorious inside three rounds. Froch dismissed the Londoner's view and promised to knock him out on Saturday night.

"Does he think he's going to last three rounds? Is that what he's saying? That's a bold statement," Froch said.

"George Groves can say what he wants this fight isn't going to go the distance whether it's three rounds, six rounds or 10 rounds.

"I finished him off in Round 9 before, made his face look like a Panda, brutally hit him with some heavy shots. I wore him down and tore him up really.

"This time it's going to be more brutal. I'm ready for it so he can make whatever predictions he wants. He cannot go the distance with me in the mood I'm in and he's not going the distance.

"Carl Froch is winning by KO or TKO on Saturday night just enjoy it."

Froch's trainer Robert McCracken added: "It's a huge fight for Britain and it's great for British boxing. It's big fight week so everyone is getting excited now.

"He's prepared for George Groves and he's prepared hard and I'm sure he'll deliver on Saturday night.

"Groves has his strengths and he also has his weaknesses like Carl. Carl cannot stay in the same spot for too long. He has to be busier (than in the first fight) and he has to move his feet a little bit more but I'll think you'll see both fighters strengths and weaknesses on the night.

"Groves is very quick, very powerful. But Carl is a 12-round fighter and he's a real fighter who can box and he can fight and we'll find that out about Groves on Saturday night at the highest, highest level.

"Can he do 12 rounds at a hard pace against Carl Froch?"

If Groves doesn't win early he won't win at all. And I don't think he can win early against a fully focused Carl Froch. Froch will win, imo, sometime in the second half of the fight. I don't think Groves…

The trainers are the only ones who speak any sense here... It's interesting the amount of respect Robert McCracken shows when he talks about Groves since the first fight.

If Carl comes out stupid again he will get dropped hard again If groves drills him with that right hand early in the round it could be a early ko for groves
